Originally named the 'Red Dragon'.

“The owners in the fifties last name was Scanlon(spelling)? It was called Red Dragon, was bought by the Ross family in 1960 and named Stadium Diner who in turn sold it to Leontino Pietrangeli and renamed it Tony’s Pizza in the late 1950s”. — Carol Pleiss

Home of the Red Dragon Burger, located at the corner of East Federal Street and the street that runs behind McKinley High School, formally known as Liberty Street, which was renamed George Rowlands Street in honor of a very devoted handicapped football fan.

So many Niles McKinley students ate lunch here in the ‘60s and ‘70s.

There was also a dance floor upstairs and students could smoke off school property.
